DEFINITION

Advanced cruise-assist highway systems (AHS) are systems that aim to reduce traffic accidents, enhance safety, improve transportation efficiency as well as to reduce the operational work of drivers.

According to Japan's MLIT, AHS can be classified into three levels based on driving support, namely AHS-"i" (information), AHS-"c" (control) and AHS-"a" (automated cruise).

AHS-"i" supports part of the information collection for driving. AHS-"c" supports part of the driving operation as well as the information collection. AHS-"a" fully supports the driving operation and the information collection, therefore, responsibility for safe driving belongs to the AHS-"a" system.

In addition to the technological problems, issues such as the responsibilities for safe driving must be considered in order to realise AHS-"a" .

IOT SNAPSHOT
The IoT ONE Radar indicates the mix of hardware, software and services used in an IoT solution.
Hardware
Processors provide the intelligence behind IoT systems and are often integrated into system-on-a-chip designs.
Hardware that enables dual directional communication for data collection and control message delivery. Examples include cellular, Ethernet, and Wi-Fi.
Sensors transform energy into electrical data; they are the eyes and ears of IoT. Actuators transform electrical data into energy; they are the muscle of IoT.
Technologies that enable legacy devices and other systems to connect to the IoT. They integrate technologies and protocols for networking.
Hardware products that are used by end users that contain IoT technology.
Wearables are smart electronic devices that can be incorporated into clothing or worn on the body as implants/accessories
Software
Software that ingests data and visualises it to generate insights to answer specific questions
Software that can take over complex human operations and operate independently of human intervention.
Platforms that facilitate and allow application developments for specific use cases and/or client requirements.
Software that focus on securing devices, machines, and communications between them.
Providing the infrastructure to store and manage data.
Services
Bringing together software, hardware, middleware, and infrastructure components to build an end-to-end solution based on specific client requirements.
Developing custom hardware for specific uses and operating environments/needs.
